Patriotic Front (PF) Member of Parliament (MP) for Mpulungu, Freedom Sikazwe, has urged opposition political parties not to shun tomorrow’s Independence Day cerebrations.
Sikazwe said tomorrow’s celebrations should not be politicised as it is the national birthday and not one political party’s birthday.
He said there is need for every patriotic Zambian to come together and cerebrate the peace that the forefathers fought.
He added that Zambia is a Christian Nation with people that fear and honour God as their creator and personal saviour that want peace to be their daily meal.
Mr Sikazwe added that it will not benefit those that will choose to shun away from the Independence Day as it will reflect that they do not appreciate what the forefathers struggled for when Zambia was colonised.
He appealed to members of the public not to listen to political leaders who may discourage them taking part in the independence celebrations.
